Hailee Steinfeld Being Eyed To Star In HAWKEYE Disney Plus Series

Hailee Steinfeld

Marvel Studios is still amping up its star-studded roster and this latest addition proves that. VARIETY is reporting that Hailee Steinfeld is currently in talks to star in the upcoming Disney Plus series, HAWKEYE. 

If this becomes official Steinfeld will join Jeremy Renner who reprises his role as Hawkeye aka Clint Barton, the now and arrow using Avenger and Steinfeld would play the role of Kate Bishop, his daughter. In the comics Kate Bishop eventually takes up the mantle in which her father held and joins the team of the Young Avengers.

Knowing how Disney and Marvel studios like to fully invest in their stars this more than likely would not be a one-off series for Steinfeld. Starring in the series would likely represent a long-term relationship with Marvel studios and it is reasonable to assume that the Bishop character would eventually spin off into either her own standalone series or even appear in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.

When Gemma Chan was announced as a cast member of Marvel Studios  THE ETERNALS many were wondering if the CRAZY RICH ASIANS star was reprising her CAPTAIN MARVEL role of Minn-Erva or if it would be a completely different character. Now we know that not only is it a different role but is the starring role.

Chan will be playing the character of Sersi as announced during the Marvel portion on the D23 stage. She took to twitter to express her gratitude and excitement.
